"And therefore whoso seeks the truth 
Shall find in no wise peace of heart." 

T A7HAT is right; what is good? How shall we know right and good? How 
can man reconcile himself to these conflicting conceptions? Our genera- 
tion has seen the beliefs and creeds we have been brought up on and trusted 
implicitly broken and trampled upon, — our views and beliefs discarded and swept 
away. How shall we deal with these things — what is right? 

Is it right to rush heedlessly into a situation to show our ways are superior? 
Is it right to remain passive and stoic in the belief that our way is good, and good 
will triumph over evil? 

For then, what is good? It is remaining staunch and firm and resisting 
change? Is not a changing world the good world — the one we are striving for? 
Is not the American way of life change and progress ? 

The American way of life is to be determined by us, the youth of America. 
We must decide whether we resist change or whether we shall determine what this 
change is to be — for if we refuse to do either and keep our heads in the clouds 
or our feet implanted in firm ground — the wave of the future will wash over us 
and destroy us.

Edmund K. Luddy 

S WE COME to the end of our four years at 
S.T.C., we look back upon the happiness we have had 
here — that happiness which comes through experiences, 
learning and friendships. All of these we have found 
and shared, not only among ourselves, but with our 
advisor, whose patient understanding and thoughtful 
guidance have been a constant inspiration. 

So with sincere wishes for his continued success, 
we gratefully dedicate this Year Book to Edmund K. 
Luddy, who has been and always will be, one of us. 







The Class of 1941 

-k/TY RELATIONSHIP to your class will always be 
■*■ ■*■ close, for you were the first Freshman Class to 
enter during my presidency and the first to complete four 
years under my administration. We are classmates. 
You have borne with courage and kind understanding 
all the uncertainties that were inherent in the changes in 
curricula and policies of the college during our years to- 
gether. Perhaps, there could not have been a better 
preparatory experience for entering a society which in 
your generation will be one of continuous and turbulent 
change. You have been inured to vicissitude and expec- 
tant of the new. Through it all our goal has remained 
fixed. We are finding new roads and ways of travel 
which will bring us more surely and happily to our des- 

I hope our years together have strengthened a 
philosophy and faith, if you fortunately possessed one, 
in the worthwhileness of the struggle for significant liv- 
ing, — and for those of you who did not, that these have 
been years full of experience out of which a sustaining 
faith might grow. Life will have meaning if you can keep 
alive, even in the midst of defeat, a belief in the inevitable- 
ness of ultimate victory. 

Into your custody as teachers is given this faith, 
to be realized in your own personal living, and to be 
passed on to the children you teach. 

My wish for you is that you shall never lose faith — 
even in the discouragement of temporary defeats. You 
will win, as all men and peoples have, who never per- 
mitted the clouds of cynicism to destroy their vision of

Only four years ago Wallie entered S. T.C.N. A. 
with chin up saying, "I won't be afraid of all 
these girls." Yes, Wallie has survived even 
though he was one of the three "male elements" 
in search of a teaching career. He did a nice 
job in that play "On the Bridge at Midnight." 
Perhaps this desire for dramatics was an in- 
herited tendency? Who knows what Wallie 
will turn to next after the psychology, logic and 
philosophy surveys he has studied! 


Mandy's college spirit has expressed itself in a 
variety of ways. Not only was she a member 
of the numerous clubs, but also served as officer, 
particularly in the Current Events Club as vice- 
president, reporter for the Newman Club mag- 
azine, assistant manager of the Year Book and 
president of the Drama Club. Mandy has also 
held her own in sports by being consistently 
on the soccer, volley ball and basketball teams. 
In social affairs she has always been active, and 
what would a Junior Prom be without Mandy 
as attendant? Her Irish sense of humor and 
sparkling gaiety have contributed to the general 
happy atmosphere of our class. 



Margaret is not very big, but she carries a lot 
of responsibility as manager of our new co- 
operative bookstore. It is through her that all 
books and other supplies are now sold. As 
class secretary during the past four years she has 
recorded much of our history, some of which 
states that Margaret served as chairman of our 
successful Junior Prom. Besides these activities 
she has been in the Current Events Club and in 
the Glee Club. Regardless of all this, we found 
Margaret's name on the President's List several 


"All-round girl" is the name for "Duff." Her 
contributions to our class have been varied and 
numerous. Besides keeping up in her scholastic 
standing by being on the President's List for 
four years, she has represented our class at the 
Boston Conference, served as vice-president of 
the class and been a member of the Glee Club 
and Choir. She has been particularly active in 
the Art Club. Her talent can be seen in the 
work she has done as art editor of our Year Book. 



Connie has used much of her boundless energy 
in activities while she has been at S. T.C.N. A. 
Her favorite sport was basketball and she usually 
made the majority of points in a game. She has 
shown herself just as capable of work in clubs 
as she has in sports. While in the Current 
Events, Drama and Glee Clubs she enjoyed her- 
self in whatever she did. As photography 
editor of the Year Book Connie served us all in 
a job requiring much time and patience. 


We look back on these four years and find that 
Rose has undoubtedly made a place for herself. 
With her trim, stylish appearance it isn't hard to 
imagine her as the chairman of social affairs! 
She was a member of the Current Events, Glee 
and Drama Clubs. Her excellent performance 
in "Fanny's First Play" she can justly be proud of. 
Although she did a great deal of extra work, she 
has held her place on the President's List during 
the past four years. 



His name might just as well be Gerald "five- 
dollars" Cleary, for he has been class treasurer, 
collector of student dues and central treasurer 
for four years. Besides this he was on the varsity 
basketball team and was a member of the Stu- 
dent Council, Current Events Club, Drama Club 
and Men's Choir. In his junior year he was 
chosen as a representative to the Eastern States 
Convention. He made the President's List 
during his junior year. With this fine record 
back of him, Gerry is sure to be a success.

Mary is recognized as one of the leading schol- 
astic students as she is the only one in the class 
who has ever been on the high honor roll. Her 
responsibilities have included membership in 
the Glee Club and the Newman Club. She 
represented the class in the Student Council. 
As a result of her hard work, the Current Events 
Club of which she is president has been es- 
tablished as one of the most active organizations 
in the school. 




Among the more quiet ones who make the daily 
journey from Pittsfield in the famous "Black 
Bullet", we find a girl who has contributed much 
to making our class the best class that ever grad- 
uated from S.T.C. Gladys has been heard and 
seen in the proper places, the Glee Club and the 
Drama Club, and has been one of the class' most 
active athletes. We mustn't forget to mention 
the ever-present brown brief case which, no 
doubt, is the secret to her place on the President's 


Every class must have its wit, and so we had 
"Minnie". She came to us in our sophomore 
year, and it was then that we realized what we 
had been missing in not having heard her quiet, 
dry humor, laughter-provoking jokes and puns. 
Besides diligently pursuing her studies, she has 
at the time been a loyal member of the Newman 
Club. It is the members of this organization 
who know her notable accomplishments as a 



Bright vivacious Peg came from "Our Lady of 
Elms" to join us in our sophomore year. At 
many of our parties since then she has entertain- 
ed us with her piano interpretations. As a result 
of her marriage during our senior year, she put 
the whole class in a romantic mood for months. 
(Ever since the wedding we haven't known 
whether her name was Seymour or Grady). As 
president of the Newman Club she has done 
much to make the club recognized at school. 


If you ever want to know anything, just ask Stan 
Gradziel — that is, if you can find him. He might 
be in Cheshire or Adams, at Sprague's or Dr. 
Vrooman's, or in New York or Boston attending 
some student conferences as a school represent- 
ative. But, anyway, he'd know, or if he didn't 
he'd pull out one of those little orange cards and 
jot it down. Perhaps those cards are the secret 
to his success as President of the Student Council. 
Stan, with his new ideas has done much this year 
to improve the student government of our school. 
We salute him for his many abilities and able 



Dot can rightly be called the guiding hand of the 
Class of '41 since she has so capably headed it 
for the past three years as president. She was a 
member of the Drama Club during her first two 
years at school. The Current Events Club sent 
her in the summer of 1940 as one of the dele- 
gates to the International Relations Institute at 
Wellesley College. During this same year she 
was also a representative of the Student Council 
to the Boston Convention. The records of the 
past four years show us that Dot's name can be 
found without fail on all the President's Lists. 


Betty — Another all-round girl in our class. As 
president of the W.A.A. her leadership was what 
carried the club through. Bet took part in all 
games and the social events and served on the 
Year Book staff for the class of '41. She also 
headed the Charlemont Taxi service which came 
over the Trail in all kinds of weather. You 
might almost say that it came through smiling. 
Betty herself always did; and may she continue 
to be a joy. 



They called her Red and well they might — her 
hair and eyes were beautiful and went along with 
a flashing and vivacious personality. Chris was 
an all-around girl taking part in Glee Club and 
athletics as well as social events. One of our 
mainstays in all our games — her speed was 


Can anyone possibly imagine the senior class 
without our Helen? Her jolly, cheerful dis- 
position and her willingness to cooperate are 
only a few of her unforgettable traits. Helen's 
literary genius has long been admired by the 
members of the class. The Ivy Poem, which 
she wrote, proves the reason for such admiration. 
Each year found her an active member of the 
Current Events Club, of which she served as 
secretary. Helen's ability to get along with 
others will not scon be forgotten. 



Helen's quiet, conscientious manner has without 
a doubt endeared her to her classmates. She 
certainly is the answer to every instructor's 
prayer, with her uncanny ability for getting 
papers in on time. However, we will remember 
Helen not only for her consistently high schol- 
astic standing, but also for her spirit of co- 
operation. Throughout her college career 
Helen's name can be found on the President's 
List. She also served as an associate editor of 
the Year Book. 


If there were such a word as "non-discourag- 
able" it could be aptly used to describe Martha. 
Whether the sun is shining brightly or whether 
the day is overcast and drizzly, Martha is always 
her same jolly self. She is never seen without 
her cheerful grin. She has been a regular at- 
tendent at the Current Events Club meetings dur- 
ing this past year, and a great deal of her time 
since her sophomore year has been devoted to- 
ward advancing the success of the Glee Club. 



"Miss Ermie" has been mainly interested in 
music during her stay at S. T.C.N. A. For the 
past four years she has very successfully led the 
second soprano section of the Glee Club at the 
annual Glee Club Concert. During her senior 
year she served as president of the Glee Club. 
She added to her responsibilities the chairman- 
ship of the ring committee and there were times 
when we found her busily writing out money 
orders for our rings. However, not all her 
interest has been in rings and musical staffs, 
for she was a most competent assistant editor 
of the Year Book. 




Ella is one of the most energetic girls in the class, 
and she has put that energy to good use on the 
class athletic teams. However, not all of her 
energies were devoted to sports for she has been 
an active member of the Current Events Club and 
Glee Club as well. She seems to enjoy traveling 
back and forth from Pittsfield, and to the con- 
ferences in Boston. We've even seen her name 
on the President's List. 




Fran, the girl with the contagious smile, is busi- 
ness manager of the Year Book. During the 
past four years she has shown that she is capable 
of managing almost anything from a Year Book 
to the making of the tickets for the Newman Club 
breakfast. Fran's popularity was proven when 
she was chosen to represent the class at the New 
York Conference in 1939- She has raised her 
voice with the Glee Club; discussed world affairs 
in the Current Events Club; and painted scenery 
for the Drama Club. We remember her name 
on the President's List. 


Four years ago there came a girl from Canada 
who has helped to make the campus a happier 
place to live on. Mart slipped a little when it 
came to American History, but she made up for 
it in personality. As a representative to the 
Student Council and this year as president of 
the House Council, she has proved herself a 
capable leader. She also has been active in the 
Art, Drama, and Current Events Clubs. One 
of our leading athletes, she has been head of 
sports, representative to a W.A.A. conference, 
and a recipient of three athletic awards. 



Hardworking, conscientious, and quiet are all 
words that can be used in describing Charlotte. 
Before she came to S. T.C.N. A. she worked for 
a doctor. With such a teacher-nurse among us, 
our class was never afraid of a few fainting 
spells. Although Charlotte had little extra time 
to participate in club work, she attended school 
functions, and she was always the first to en- 
courage her classmates with her congratulations. 


Quiet and unassuming, — and indispensible. 
She always took a prominent part, literally and 
figuratively, in athletics. Her height and strength 
were great assets. So was her generosity with 
her car, which she unselfishly used as a taxi, 
available to us all. 



A blonde, ambitious, energetic and ever-en- 
thusiastic individual is "Del". Activity has been 
her guide. It was she, no less, who was chosen as 
advisor to the Frosh. Without fail her name has 
been on the President's List. She has been a 
member of the Drama, Glee, and Current Events 
Clubs. In the summer of 1940 she was a 
representative of the Current Events Club to the 
International Relations Institute at Welleslev 
College. As a perfect climax she is Editor-in- 
Chief of the Year Book. 


When we were sophomores another young 
gentleman was added to our quota of three men. 
Jack transferred from Ithaca College, New York. 
While there he was interested in football, basket- 
ball, baseball and wrestling. There seems to be 
a shortage of these at S. T.C.N. A., but he managed 
to get in two years of basketball. During his 
senior year he served as coach of the Mark 
Hopkins basketball team. Aside from sports. 
Jack also had an interest in drama, and he man- 
aged to make the President's List. 



Jennie's interests have been greatly varied, for 
whether it was the Drama, Current Events, or the 
Glee Club, she was present. Besides that she 
found time to be class vice-president for three 
years, treasurer of the W.A.A. during her soph- 
omore year, and an assistant editor of the Year 
Book staff. However, her main interest has been 
in the Drama Club. Although her ability was 
shown by her acting in "On the Bridge at Mid- 
night", her big success was made during her 
senior year, when she played a leading part in 
"Fanny's First Play." 

Those Who Were With Us: 

Ruth Boyington — Pittsfield, Massachusetts. 
June Chase — California. 

Olive Collins — North Adams, Massachusetts. 
Margherita Garofalo — Secretary in Greenfield. 
Helen Leavens — North Adams, Massachusetts. 
Ruth McKay — North Adams, Massachusetts. 
Ernestine Smith — Mrs. David Ulrich. 
Ruth Tabor — Secretary in Springfield.

EMEMBER my people and please do not run, 
But listen to us and to what we have done. 

We had many women, but men only three, 

We were all very scared as was easy to see; 

Our caps were too bright and our faces too pale, 

But what could be done with the Sophs on our trail? 

The Hallowe'en party gave us a good chance, 

For then we could make the dear Sophomores prance: 

We went to some parties and promenades too; 

(Of course there was work that we all had to do) 

Then when it was May came our first Freshman Hop, 

And President Bowman said it was the top; 

Some mountains were climbed and then Robin Hood reigned. 

The Freshmen sang Class Day, and all entertained. 

Then when we were Sophomores all did agree 

That Freshmen so small would be ruled by decree. 

Judge Barrett droned forth and we need not exclaim 

We gave them a party and everyone came. 

Not just in November did we have a Soiree, 

But our class had a dance on St. Patrick's own day. 

On a cold night in winter our sleigh bells did ring, 

And on May Day young Ferdinand greeted the spring, 

It wasn't all fun, there was studying too, 

You well can believe us because we're telling you. 

Ed Luddy, advisor to us, you well know, 

Always said we were grand — as he walked to and fro. 


'Twas Juniors we were in the very next year, 
To brothers and sisters we bent our good ear. 
We went to the movies to see "The Old Maid," 
And this was the year that we started our trade. 
We had the new building to teach in, of course; 
We sang and we spelled and we read until hoarse: 
Then when we came back to the college for more 
They gave us some methods and courses galore; 
When they needed to find out just how much we knew, 
We took those exams and we barely pulled through. 
But then at the end of the year came the Prom, 
The girls brought a Harry and a Dick and a Tom; 
Oh, we were so sad when all said goodbye! 
"I'll see you next year," was the forty-one cry. 

These four years have passed where they've gone we don't know, 

But we face the future with outlook just so. 

It was from Miss Jenkins we got rural strife, 

And all are prepared for a school teacher's life, 

With 'isms and 'ologies, and logic to boot 

We can now teach the young idea just how to shoot, 

We went up to Clarksburg and taught in the field. 

It wasn't long after* when our fates were sealed. 

Meanwhile we were learning to wear cap and gown 

(If the cap isn't straight just watch Underhill frown!) 

For the Spring Prom, our last, we all looked so swell, 

And on Class Day we carried the daisy chain well. 

*(We hope.) 

Dolores Vanotti 


T ISTEN my children, and you shall hear 

Of some wonderful people you'll soon revere. 
In nineteen hundred and forty-one 
In the month of June, in the light of the sun, 
Twenty-three women and four lone men 
Left school to go into the world, just when 
Many dark war clouds hovered about; 
But that didn't scare them, as you'll find out. 
In nineteen hundred and sixty now, 
All of these people are really a wow. 
Just listen carefully while I relate 
How kind to each one has been good old fate. 

Every month or so on the radio 

You hear some very long speeches. 

The person who talks? — Mr. Barrett, or course, — 

Now a statesman who no longer teaches. 

In Hollywood city at the corner of Vine 
Stands an escort bureau with a great big sign, — 
"If you need a redhead, brunette, or a blondie, 
Be sure to see Mandy, Frances, and Connie." 

The newspapers carry the names of two lasses 

Mart Stein and Duff Bettcher, who teach many classes, 

Not lessons in manners or how to make tea, 

But the why's, how's, and wherefore's of learning to ski. 




In the army two majors of great renown 

Make ladies' hearts flutter in many a town. 

Jack Veazie is one, Gerald Cleary, the other, 

But to them girls mean nothing, for they still love mother. 

And since our three gentlemen now are my text 
A brilliant philosopher comes to mind next. 
Stanley Gradziel's his name. As we once suspected, 
He knows all about life and its ultimate objective. 

On the radio the words "My friends" 
Are often used by Mary Flynn, 
The columnist, who weekly sends 
Rebuke for sociological sin. 

The ladies Seymour, Scace, and Russell 

Run about their homes in much of a hustle, 

For successful, cheerful, happy wives 

Have no time to waste when their husbands like pies. 

A postmistress general last year was appointed, 
A tradition was broken, when she was annointed; 
But when postmistress Jennie writes letters galore, 
Over where to get stamps she need worry no more. 


"If you're troubled by dreams, either good or bad, 
Find out what they mean, consult Miss "Glad". 
Gladys, the analyst of all kinds of dreams, 
Has the slogan above, and is happy it seems. 

Now are you unhappy in your married life? 
Have you the desire to win a fine wife? 
Each question received by your columnist Pike 
Will be cheerfully answered in a manner you'll like. 

A taxi service over the Mohawk Trail 

Is carried on each day without fail. 

One owner, B. Pierson, — we call her Betty 

Has a bookkeeper partner named Peg Benedetti. 

The Pulitzer Prize was awarded last year 
To a book that brought some people pleasure and cheer; 
The people who read it pronounced the book "funny", 
But the authoress, Minnie, said it was just "punny". 

A nursery school that's of far-reaching fame 

Is supervised well, in a manner quite sane, 

By its owners, the Misses H. Potter and Rand, 

Who own all kinds of toys, books, and tables of sand. 


"Dot and Del", "Del and Dot" — 

In college we heard that quite a lot. 

The whole country hears it now over the air 

For their program is called "The Inseparable Pair" 

On the Broadway stage there's a brand new star 
Who since "Fannie's First Play" has gone very far; 
Miss Butterly Rose is her new stage name, 
And we're all very proud of her Thespian fame. 

In college two lasses were mistaken in classes 
Because their names sounded the same. 
Now Miss Stuart — (ua) and Miss Stewart — (ew) 
Are distinguished by new wedded names. 

Patient and silent you all have been 
While I've read you the words of the mighty pen 
You are not over awed by these words, I see 
But perhaps you are wondering, — what of me? 

Helen, a prophetess, is the name 
And the telling of fortunes is my new game. 
Fame has not found me, as this poem shows 
But someday it may — one never knows. 

Helen T. Quinton 



^~\H, SINCE we are going from this, our dear school, 

^~* And being of sound minds with heads under rule, 

We now take these minutes to give unto you 

The treasures and pleasures we know you'll love too. 

From Scace, Ella Mae, to the junior Miss Yates 

Is left all her charm and abundance of dates. 

Jadwiga, that's Jennie, will give her first name 

To some plain young lady who wishes some fame. 

Miss Pierson, you know, who lives up on a hill? 

She leaves her best horse to a young man named Bill. 

Jack Veazie he tells us has nothing to give 

For he and his Miss need it so they can live. 

And Stanley has given his bright orange cards 

To boys in the smoking room who were his pards. 

Our Pike, Christine E. famous for her red hair, 

To Barbara Beals has allotted her share. 

McManama's given all Cleary's hard work 

For it is a duty he will not shirk. 

Pris Stuart decided to keep her blue car, 

So leaves you her smile, which is better by far. 

To juniors, whose minds are so often on floats, 

Our own Gladys Goddard will leave all her notes. 

Sweet Mandy has so much of this and of — well, 

To girls who are lonesome her secrets she'll tell. 

And then Ermyn Russell leaves her perfect hair 

To Marion Brown, that young damsel so fair. 

Oh, red is Miss Grady's own favorite hue; 

She leaves it to all with some white and some blue. 

Duff Bettcher has given her artistic flairs 


To freshmen who paint apples, peaches and pairs! 

And then Mary Flynn leaves a fine waiting place 

To those who can catch the bus without a race. 

And Miss Benedetti will leave all her shine 

To Mr. Koczela, who says that's just fine, 

Next Miss Dottie Kruszyna is willing to share 

Those young men of whom she has many to spare. 

Now Connie and Frances both leave the same thing, — 

Their laughter much happiness always will bring. 

To Miss Gertrude Lyons, Walt Barrett has left 

The secret which gave him so much of his heft. 

Remembering her title is now that of Mrs. 

Peg leaves it to that girl who's careful with kisses. 

Miss Quinton, Miss Potter, who now lead our class 

As poets, give talent to some lucky lass. 

It's Martha with Stein and it's Martha with Rand, 

To those who will work, they will give a big hand. 

Rose Butterly now will give her acting power 

To a charming young miss who is named Shirley Bower. 

Miss Stewart (e w) leaves you her job: 

There's only two children and that's not a mob. 

There's only one left, — she's the one they call Del, 

Perhaps she has something, you never can tell. 

We've signed and we've stamped, had this document sealed, 

And on no single point will old forty-one yield. 

We have as our witnesses people galore, 

A big stack of Bibles they used when they swore, 

Our last will and testament cannot be broken, 

Hear ye, underclassmen, your seniors have spoken.

TT'ATHER Time has drawn the curtain 

On our years at S.T.C. 
And we face with steps uncertain 
Our fate that is to be. 

Fond the mem'ries that will linger, 
Fond the joys of days to be. 
When our steps once more will bring us 
Back to thee, old S.T.C. 


Farewell, farewell, farewell, S. T.C.N. A. 

Farewell, farewell, farewell, S. T.C.N. A.

TVY, UNFOLD your shining leaves, for deep 

In them our memories lie, and waxen shades 
Seal up the eyelids of their golden sleep. 
We place you here to live and slowly grow, 
To keep alive the mem'ries of this place 
So dear to us. Your groping tendrils now 
Are young and frail, fragile those waxen leaves, 
— Young and unrooted once we — seekers — were 
When first we knew these halls of which you're guard. 

Slowly unfold your shining pointed leaves 
Tenaciously take deeper root, — and reach 
Reach ever upward to the God above 
Who gives us all the mystic strength to grow. 
As leaf by leaf the waxen shades are raised 
And memories awake, the breezes stir 
Them all at once, and whispers will be heard, 
Old secrets of the years before we came 
New secrets of the hidden years to come. 

Helen Potter 




"We think our fathers fools, so wise we grow; 
Our wiser sons, no doubt, will think us so." 

POPE might have written this about the youth of today, and he would still 
have given a true picture of the torment of doubt in which Youth finds it- 
self. Our distrust of traditional ideals frightens the older generation. In turn 
the suspicions and accusations of some members of the older generation anger us. 
During the past twenty years it was Youth Shall Have Its Fling. Now everybody 
has his fling at Youth. Very well, we'll listen to all the accusations, but we de- 
mand the right to defend ourselves against such claims as; that Youth is soft, 
anarchistic, cold-blooded, obstinate, sophistic, radical, and lacking in any sense 
of morality. Conscious of the fact that America fears we may not support the 
democratic way of living, that we may fail her in the hour of crisis, we assert the 
existence of our undaunted Americanism although we are critical, even skeptical 
of many things in our world. We insist that no one mistake this distrust of ours 
for cowardice or sympathy with either Fascism or Communism. It is true that 
in general it is students who have gained the reputation of being radicals. Lead- 
ing thinkers cite as proof such examples as the American Youth Congress and the 
comments on life which come from the campus to the public through the college 
newspapers. We deny the accusation on the basis that so much publicity is given 
to the exhibitionists that the public forgets all about the real leaders of tomorrow, 
who are too busy putting themselves through college to have time for subversive 
activities. These people, however, are not ignoring all life outside their own 
spheres but are honestly questioning many points in our national philosophy. 

Why is it that the Youth of free America is skeptical when in the totalitarian 
governments it is the Youth, credulous Youth, who display the superabundance of 
enthusiasm for the national aims? For the answer to this we must look to the 
educational system, for it is there that much of the formation of youthful ideals is 
accomplished. For years our intellectual leaders have been telling us that nothing 
is true which cannot be verified by the methods of empirical science. As a result 
there has grown up in America a group of materialists who believe that moral 
values are private opinions and that material success is the only criteria for judging 
ethical issues. Many of us have been brought up in the system of progressive 
education which, while it may have been very beneficial to the development of our 
personalities, has done little to prepare us for the cold, gray world. Our skeptic- 
ism has been fostered, perhaps unknowingly, by competent and unprejudiced 
teachers who have sought to place us on our guard against propaganda. For over 
a decade we have been led to see the dangers of the situation which forced Ameri- 
ca's entrance into the World War in 1 9 1 7 and the faults of the Treaty of Versailles, 
which grew out of that war. As a result we have all formed the conclusion that 
we won the war but lost the peace, and we are determined that this shall not be 
repeated. We have been led to analyze propaganda and to face the fact that the 
older generation failed where it might have succeeded after the last war. Our 


elders taught us to be skeptical, and now they find some of us too skeptical. We 
have learned our lesson well — perhaps too well. 

However, as Browning said, "....when the fight begins within himself, a 
man's worth something." We are not disloyal; we are only waiting for the truth. 
We realize that Democracy is on trial in the world on a more colossal scale than 
ever before, but we are loathe to accept all statements as facts free of propaganda. 
We will not be misled by any talk of a "limited war." We, as students, know 
that this is impossible, for, if America faces war, it will be total war. Convince 
us that war is the best means of serving our American ideals and we will follow 
you anywhere. However, we will not carry on traditions simply because they are 

Instead of following traditions we want to know all the why's and how's of 
our world. For example, why are we terming our activities National Defense? 
Doesn't that have the negative implication that we are afraid, that we are desper- 
ately trying to maintain the status quo? In the words of the football player, a 
good offense is the best defense. We cannot be contented with maintaining life 
as it is. It must go on to the point where Youth will not be faced with depression, 
unemployment, and war. We will have to set up a "new world order" that is 
more fair and more just than anything existing today. We will have to raise up 
on this continent the strongest, ablest, hardiest, and most intelligent race of men 
and women that ever inhabited the world. 

We, the maligned Youth of today, are reluctant to parade our ideals in public 
but we will admit this, — that our search for the truth has given us a clear under- 
standing of national aims in this present world order. Especially clear to us are 
war aims. We have a deep-seated resentment against a war which involves great 
waste and insures nothing but another war; we are not completely oblivious to 
the arguments for a preventive military war, but we insist that this war not be 
waged for economic ends; we recognize the need for national discipline, but we 
deplore regimentation; we approve of censorship for concealing military news 
from an enemy, but we denounce censorship which hides blunders. 

With these ideals and our realistic philosophy we here are going out to 
teach the Youth of the schools. We will in our turn imbue them with the idea 
that honest, intellectual approaches to their problems will benefit themselves 
and society most. Perhaps after many generations have passed and this crisis is 
a matter of history, the "new world order" may finally emerge from the awakening 
of a people dissatisfied with merely maintaining the status quo. 

Perhaps the older generation disapproves of all this and calls us traitors. 
We are not traitors! If America is threatened, we'll fight! Indeed, we will 
change our conclusions in the light of greater reason but will be shamed out of 
neither the moral strength of a defensive position nor the greater chance of 
preserving American Democracy by keeping out of war.We do not defy you, our 
elders; we challenge you! We won't fail America but will give, and expect, the 
best in human effort.

7f WARM September day — Our "college on the hill" was humming with 
tales of summer escapades and plans for future — shall we say — diligence? 
But look! What is this group over here? Could this be the silly sophs of las 1 
year. Oh, yes! Suddenly the juniors felt oh, so superior! Rather grown-up and 
blase, you know. For, after all had they not assumed a new responsibility? 
A new group of eager, naive youngsters was groping about for security, and it 
was the juniors who soon stepped forward, and in accordance with S.T.C. tra- 
dition, offered themselves as big brothers and sisters to those bewildered plebes. 

But this was not their sole venture. With very high ambitions and somewhat 
low spirits, they entered the training school. Between teaching and participating 
in the "Christmas Carol" operetta, the juniors found themselves well occupied 
for several weeks. Busy as they might be at the training school, however, they 
still found time for college activities. In fact, Stunt Night was also a junior 
triumph, was it not? 

January came — and with it a collegiate revolution! Eyebrows were raised 
and tongues were loosed as the news rapidly spread. The non-conforming 
juniors were having their prom in the winter! Strangely enough, the snow was 
not too deep, — people came, — why yes! the Junior Prom was one of the social 
highlights of the year. 

As the weeks flew by came Play Day, met and managed by this class with 
enthusiasm and success. Then commencement, which for the Class of '42 meant 
a farewell to the seniors and to the underclassmen "Auf Wiedersehen."

T ATE'RE not going to say that the Class of '43 is the best class in the school. 
We are far too modest for that. We are going to let facts speak for them- 
selves. Take our initiation of the freshmen. You've certainly got to admit those 
dog collars and canine nick names were clever — and the baby carriage taxi — 

what an inspiration Our next success was the creepy murder mystery play 

we presented on stunt night. It was so good we were frightened to death before 

it began It is very difficult to say anything about the Hawaiian Hop, our 

November semi-formal, without appearing immodest, because it was the best 
dance of the year. The decorating of the social hall was supervised by Mr. Flagg, 
and we slaved for two weeks to produce the desired effect. The decorations were 
so realistic that two freshmen waded into the punch bowl thinking it was the 
Pacific Ocean. . . .Just to show our versatility, we dropped our usual sophistica- 
tion for one evening in February and put on a real old-fashioned barn dance. 
With a genuine band imported from the hills of Charlemont, we led a delighted 
group of students through an exhausting series of square sets and quadrilles. . . . 
The Class of '43 was well represented on the stage and behind scenes in the play 
presented by the Drama Club. . . .The Glee Club depended greatly on sophomore 
voices. . . .We beat the upper classmen at basketball. . . .The sophomores domin- 
ated the noontime volley ball loop. . . .We faithfully attended all social functions 
. . . .We astounded the school with our beautiful songs on Class Day. 

Well, what more do you want?

TN September of the year 1940, S.T.C.N.A. saw another group of high school 
graduates descending upon it. Because it was a much smaller group than 
usual, the class of 1944 started out with a difference and they are told that they 
are different. These freshmen were greeted with the usual tests, although it is 
suspected that an extra one was slipped in somewhere. The second step in the 
program of education was a gay, fun-filled party, the annual freshman reception. 
Having been shown the gayer side of their new life first, books and studying began 
to occupy the major part of college hours.... To relieve the monotony of this 
studying, the freshman group undertook the Hallowe'en party, an occasion in 
which any pretense of seriousness was banned and only fun and merriment allow- 
ed Two months later came the Christmas festivities, at which these fast- 
learning freshmen were shown the complete good fellowship and congeniality 
of their more experienced classmates In return for these good times the fresh- 
men were determined to make their dance a success, and pinned many hopes upon 
the delicate scent of apple blossoms placed in a soft backgroundof pink and brown. 
Freshman activities were not limited to local and personal interests, but included 

the maintenance of a refugee child in England Though the freshman ranks 

were greatly diminished during the year, those that remained were so ably steered 
by Miss Boyden that they are highly expectant about the future. Now they really 
belong to this college; they are a part of it, and it is theirs.

THIS YEAR under the efficient leadership of Stanley Gradziel, the Student 
Council has done a great deal in school government. The use of a special 
bulletin board on the stairway kept everyone informed as to what was being dene 
during the meetings. This information added a great deal to the prestige of our 
student government, because the student body realized the accomplishments of 
the Council. 

A ruling begun last year in regard to student dues was made even more effec- 
tive. The Council tried the use of student tickets for all school functions quite 
successfully. Something yet needs to be done about the dilatoriness in paying 
student dues. We hope that in the near future no such problem will prevail! 

In order that we might share in the new ideas of other colleges we sent 
delegates to the Boston Conference in the fall, and the New York Conference in 
the spring.

■ I 'HIS YEAR the College Dramatic Club offered a somewhat varied program. 
The fundamental tenet of the club was that every member should be given 
the opportunity to do what he or she wished to do in the field of drama. Equal 
emphasis was placed on acting, scenery, lighting, costuming and make-up. 

The Old English Christmas party held in December gave the members of the 
club an opportunity to prove their skill in designing and making costumes. The 
highlight of the year was the production of Bernard Shaw's "Fanny's First Play," 
which was an unprecedented success, under the able direction of Miss Mary 

In May the club members attended the performance of O'Neill's Marco 
Millions on the occasion of the opening of the Adams Memorial Theatre.

■"PHE Current Events Club has been a particularly active club this year. At 
"■" the time of the Presidential elections last fall the club sponsored a series 
of debates and forums on the campaign issues. The student straw vote gave 
Willkie a slight majority. The faculty vote was just what might be expected. 
In January, Dr. Sollmann, a very distinguished former member of the German 
Reichstag, was brought to the school to lecture to us. Our annual debate was held 
in March and the question discussed whether we should give all aid to Britain or 
remain totally neutral. The affirmative side won in a close decision. We have 
held numerous discussions during our regular meetings which have proved of 
interest to all the members. Mr. Luddy has done much to aid the club in his 
capacity as advisor. We are all grateful for our efficient organization which 
owes much to the work of the president and the advisor.

THE Glee Club has cooperated as usual this year in any and all activities 
which call for music. The annual concert was deferred until May 4th since 
all musical efforts were directed toward Dickens' Christmas Carol, presented by 
the pupils of Mark Hopkins school assisted by the junior class. Glee Club 
members aided in teaching the music and making costumes for the children. 

An auxiliary group of young men joined the choir for several numbers at the 
annual concert. This departure from the usual custom proved very acceptable. 
The Kingman ensemble of Pittsfield presented a quartet in D minor by Mozart. 

On May 20th the Glee Club broadcasted from station W.B.R.K. in Pittsfield, 
the Cantata, Wind of the West by Stonghton which won such warm applause at 
the annual concert. 

Special mention should be made of the manner in which the accompanists 
and the librarians have fulfilled their obligations through a long year when no 
recognition other than that of satisfaction in a duty well performed, has been

ANOTHER comparitively successful year in the history of the House Council 
has come to an end, and once more we must tear off a page of the calendar 
of Taconic Hall. Of the many dates on that calendar, several have been red letter 
days for our Council. At a series of teas throughout the year, our guests were 
the faculty of the college, the faculty of the training school, and the four classes. 
On February 22nd we sponsored a dormitory dinner-dance . Because of the day 
on which it occurred the committee used decorations of the patriotic colors 
red, white, and blue, and in place of the "Spirit of '76", we managed to demon- 
strate the "Oomph of '4l!" Toward the end of the season we bade farewell to 
Miss Queeney our matron for three years, who is now Mrs. Obert. Her place 
is now being ably filled by Miss Irene Golden. On behalf of the dormitory, 
we extend her a hearty welcome and sincerely wish her a happy stay at our college

TN SEPTEMBER began a program of unceasing activity for the athletically 
J- inclined. Varying with the season the sports offered a wide range of choice. 
Autumn brought soccer; Winter — skiing, badminton, ping-pong, and basketball; 
and Spring — soft ball. Interspersed with these violent activities were meetings — 
meetings that selected delegates to attend not only the annual Women's Athletic 
Conference at Bridgewater, but to a Play Day program at New Britain, Connecti- 
cut. The delegates reported to the W.A.A. so all shared in the good time, if only 
vicariously. The usual program was varied this year by the inclusion of a highly 
successful Sports Night which may soon compete with May Day and Play Day as 
the most popular of events sponsored by the W.A.A. The annual picnic in June 
was a joyous conclusion to a profitable year.

has continued t3 grow steadily. The basketball team followed a rather impressive 
schedule this year. As yet, their brows have lacked the laurel wreaths, but who 
knows what may happen in the future? The M.A.A. also provided us with one of 
the best entertainments of the year when it showed movies of a Fred Waring 
broadcast. So "we give cheer on cheer" boys for the M.A.A. at S. T.C.N. A.
